    While I was jumping and running and crouching about (or flattening myself to the floor) in this ballet practise that I have told you about before, the teacher came up to me and said, hey, listen, please take a photo of the men who help me build up the scene, will you.
    When this man showed up, she came rushing towards me again and said, Corinna, Corinna, you must take a photo of this man, too, he's missing in the other, but I need his picture, too, for the programme!!!
    I had exactly one attempt to capture him well - a person who I had never seen before, who I still don't know AT ALL, and who I was supposed to cover so his pic can go into that booklet. Ah well:

    Great job Corinna! Especially considering the "you've only got one go at this" factor!

    Thank you! :D
    I'm kind of happy with this one, too.
    Don't know if he is, though. His wife wasn't too impressed when I showed her, but I think she feels a bit above me, anyway :confused:

    Corrina I think that shot is absolutely great considering the circumstances and amount of time (or lack of!) you had to set it up. Great work :thumbup:

    The papers will be calling you any day now with asignments :sexywink:

    Very nice, Corrina! I really like this portrait and think it will look great on the programme!!

    So far as the wife is concerned ... let her feel like she's above you all she wants ... we all know better :hug::
